A New Lateral Flow Reader for Fluorescence-Labeled Lateral Flow Tests
IUL SA presents iPeak® Europium, a new off-the-shelf lateral flow reader designed to scan fluorescence-labeled lateral flow tests.
iPeak Europium is a Point of Care (PoC) quantitative, semi-quantitative, qualitative Lateral Flow Reader that ensures precise interpretation of results for both routine sample testing and research and can also be useful during the development of lateral flow tests. iPeak Europium measures the fluorescence signal when europium-chelate-based fluorescent nanoparticles of lateral flow tests are excited. Nowadays, fluorescence lateral flow tests represent an affordable alternative to the PCR tests and guarantee a high sensitivity and specificity.
iPeak Europium was presented at the 2021 Advanced Lateral Flow Conference in San Diego and will be showcased at MEDICA, the world’s leading medical trade fair, which is taking place in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 November 2021.
Higher sensitivity and more traceability
IUL SA is unrelentingly diligent in the pursuit of the latest innovation and excellence in its products. iPeak Europium is equipped with iPeak technology based on the principles of machine vision illumination. The camera captures the test image that is illuminated with LED lights accurately positioned to achieve a precise and uniform illumination and enhance the colors of any lateral flow test.
With iPeak Europium technology, it’s possible to achieve better sensitivity and boost the potential of lateral flow tests. “We believe that the sensitivity level set by the iPeak Europium will be key for its success.” Says Vicenç Font, CEO in the IUL.
Nowadays, objectivity, traceability, and connectivity are demanded in the analysis of lateral flow tests. That is why the need for reasonable cost-wise Lateral Flow Readers is increasing. iPeak Europium is equipped with Datamatrix reading for complete sample traceability, WiFi, and Ethernet to transfer data to server, LIMS, Cloud, etc. iPeak Europium can store a large number of results, raw and processed images in its internal memory.
Lateral Flow Strip Assays’ low cost and rapid results have been an essential tool in the fight against COVID-19. Fluorescence-labeled lateral flow tests provide better sensitivity and are more affordable than PCR for sub-developed countries and screening large numbers of people. Lateral flow tests are widely used in animal health industries, food, cosmetics, and research for a variety of applications.
